With all the talk about people wanting to buy TNA Impact Wrestling, a new name has popped up saying he wants to buy the company, but this one will never happen. According to PWS on Nov. 2, Jake “The Snake” Roberts said he wants to buy TNA Impact Wrestling.
Roberts said that he has been watching wrestling since it started 12 years ago and he feels that they suck. He then said that, if he got the chance to run the company, he could turn them around in six months and end up beating Vince McMahon’s WWE numbers. He then guaranteed that fact.
Roberts has been working on sobering up and turning his life around with Diamond Dallas Page. While he had one slip up with alcohol, he has been drug free for a long time now and has finally moved out of Page’s “Accountability Crib.” Roberts is now living with his attorney and is still living a clean life.
The problem with The Snake wanting to buy TNA Impact Wrestling is that he said he would want to start an Indiegogo campaign to raise the money. This seems fishy, since it will take millions to buy TNA Impact Wrestling from Panda Energy and there is no way to raise that money in crowd funding.
Indiegogo is a platform that would allow Roberts to keep all the money donated, even if he can’t reach his goal. With the chances of reaching the goal to buy TNA Impact Wrestling almost nil on crowd funding platforms, donors would be padding Roberts’ pockets instead of saving TNA Wrestling.
